  EUROPE 

STUMPF, Johan. [A very rare 16th century woodcut map of Europe]
Europa / die erst Tafel des Ersten Büchs. Zürich, 1548. Woodcut, printed area 290 x 390mm, with generous margins. Small worm holes in map area, otherwise a very fine example.
A woodcut map of Europe copied from Sebastian Munster, retaining the orientation of north to te bottom of the map, published in Stumpft's 'Schwitzer Cronik'. However, while Munster limited the decoration of his map to one galleon, Stumpf has filled the seas with ships and some of the most imaginative sea monsters ever put on a map. BORRI: Europe p. 95 & 97.
[Ref: 19501]    £2,500.00 ($3,243 • €2,903 rates)
